Simple Step-By-Step for Making Sweet & Spicy Tofu
For this recipe, start by prepping the tofu. Drain and press the tofu for 15 minutes. I like to cut the tofu into long strips before pressing it to get even more water out. Place the tofu strips between kitchen towels and stack with books to press. You can also use a tofu press if you have one.
The next step is to cut the tofu into cubes. Next, add oil to the pan and let it heat up. While the oil is heating, make the sauce. Add all ingredients to a cup or small bowl and mix. Add the tofu to the pan and flip it every few minutes until all sides are crispy. Lastly, add the sauce and continue to move the tofu around until all pieces are evenly coated and the sauce has thickened. Top with chopped peanuts, sesame seeds, or whatever toppings you’d like!
